thank you. headlines an international u.n. security council. sanctions against north korea for the resolution was changed from a much tougher u.s. drafted. blank syrian passports stolen from the states government with german authorities believing that over eleven thousand of them could now be in the hands of islamic state. devastating hurricane weakens businesses in the affected areas face criticism about how the price is.
4:01 am
live from moscow from all of us here at aussie international a very warm welcome to you. the u.n. security council has adopted new sanctions against north korea the latest resolution prohibits for example the poacher's of textiles from the country it also restricts the hiring of north koreans as foreign workers plus the document puts a cap on pyongyang's oil imports but this is a huge step back from what was originally proposed by the united states in new york correspondent and explains. this is a very different resolution than the draft that was circulated by the united states the original draft of the resolution that the u.s. circulated have actually called for a full oil and natural gas embargo against the d.p. r. k. forbidding north korea from importing any oil or natural gas well the resolution
4:02 am
that just passed is far different simply caps the amount of oil and natural gas that north korea can import now the original draft that was being circulated furthermore called for a freezing of the assets of kim jong il and an a travel ban on north korea's leader forbidding him from leaving north korea that was not included in the resolution that just passed now immediately after it was unanimously passed by the fifteen members of the u.n. security council quite a change in tone from u.s. leaders regarding north korea we heard nikki haley speaking before the u.n. security council today and kind of calm tone saying that the north koreans have not passed a point of no return that there are peaceful and diplomatic solutions to the crisis but we've heard some very different words from nikki haley herself as whether as well as other u.s. officials in relation to north korea they will be met with fire. the shield stands guard. and the sword stands ready massive military response of the regime. and overwhelming nuclear threats show that he is
4:03 am
begging for war. we are not looking for a war the north korean regime has not yet passed the point of no return if it agrees to stop its nuclear program it can reclaim its future if it proves it can live in peace the world to live in peace with and we also heard from the representative of the russian federation now the ambassador for the russian federation he talked about how russia's opinion and russia's perspective has been and russia maintains that it is. not acceptable for north korea to have nuclear weapons furthermore he went on to emphasize the double freeze proposal put forward by russia and china calling for a freeze in provocative military drills in the south and in exchange for a freeze on nuclear proliferation and provocative activities from the north this is
4:04 am
the ambassador of the russian federation speaking before the u.n. security council. it's a big mistake to underestimate this russian chinese initiative it remains on the table at the security council and we will insist on it being considered. now the resolution that was just passed emphasised the call for the six party talks to resume from day one russia and china have called for negotiations and a diplomatic solution to the crisis and an easing of tensions on the korean peninsula and it seems that that view put forward by russia and china from the beginning of this crisis has prevailed with the resolution being passed by the fifteen member body the u.n. security council the experts we spoke to think that a diplomatic solution to the korean crisis is still possible but despite the fact that the u.s. is pushing tough measures against pyongyang i think that they wanted some action to be taken and they knew that china and i believe also russia would not go along with
4:05 am
what the draft was that it was really recipe for extinction for north korea korea has also said that if there's a peace treaty signed between them and the united states and there's a halt to those maneuvers that they would suspend nuclear and missile tests by the united states has brush this off as absolutely unthinkable and so i think that's the real reason that we have an ongoing crisis so you know you have here is basically nikki haley having initially distributed the most extreme stat abstentions. perhaps even historically this latest round of sanctions which was supposed to be extremely hard hitting but instead reflected the influence of both russia and china in pushing for diplomacy actually signals a possibility and even though things have gotten about as grim as they possibly
4:06 am
could with regard to u.s. policy toward north korea there is a rational pathway at hand. following the adoption of the resolution russia and china reiterated their cold for a double freeze plan on north korea mentioned just a bit earlier by our correspondent under the plan pyongyang would stop its nuclear and ballistic missile tests in return america and south korea would stop dead joint military exercises ahead of the vote the north korean leader warned that washington would pay a high price if its tough a draw for a solution was passed on seas correspondent anna pyramidal reports from seoul. considering this sanctions resolution passed by the u.n. security council is the toughest to date concerning north korea's ballistic missile and a nuclear weapons program and is furious before the vote even took place the government issued a very harsh statement warning they will act tough on the quote u.s.
4:07 am
gangsters and promised pain and suffering. the feelings coming measures to be taken by the d.p. ok will cause the u.s. the greatest free it's has through its entire history now to get some perspective on the government in pyongyang i spoke with a member of the national assembly here in seoul that they saw libya. collapse they think they could because they don't have any nuclear weapons. if they have nuclear weapons united states. war has to invade them. especially iraq. because they have nuclear weapons. they think the u.s. has to. say that they're still. thinking despite much talk out of
4:08 am
seoul underscoring their commitment to a diplomatic solution this week it was announced by opposition along makers they will include requests for u.s. tactical nukes in their twenty eight thousand budget proposal i asked mr hall if he supported this action and how it would make koreans safer because the weapons they want. they want to have. inside software territory you know i try to. tries to supreme i try and. even thought of china. it's putting. some kind of sanctions i think. we're going to. however they say while they would like more sanctions any additional actions taken against pyongyang will need to include russia and china. i refer to the need for tighter sanctions and belief in the china and russia are
4:09 am
sticking to the same position but what concrete measures need to be taken is something we must discuss together. this week a delegation of opposition lawmakers from seoul will head to washington where they will likely make this request for tactical nuclear weapons china is on the record saying such an act would be a red line as they're staunchly against the presence of nuclear weapons on the korean peninsula so if such an action is to be carried out by the trump administration it would surely only inflame tensions further in seoul on your part until. blank syria. that over a thousand of them. i think that fake passports give the terrorists to europe or all of the reports. eleven thousand blank syrian passports could be in
4:10 am
the hands of isis starts according to an investigation that was carried out by the build on sunday newspaper citing documents from the german police and from the german interior ministry once filled in with a person's details these passports codes allow terrorists to into europe undetected using a valid passport disguising themselves as refugees developments in connection with the refugee situation has shown that terrorist organizations they using the opportunity to smuggle potential attackers all supporters into europe in germany undetected fake or altered passports are mostly used for illegal entry without further motives like carrying out a terrorist attack this is more news that sure to worry germans after it emerged earlier this month that a group of sixty four members of a group linked to al qaeda may have traveled here disguising themselves as refugees another group are accused of war crimes and carrying out numerous massacres we've
4:11 am
also seen an uptick in the number of those accused of having being fighters with terror organizations facing trial here in germany one of those is the rebel commander able to him if he's accused of having tortured people in syria he entered the country as a refugee at the end of this month prosecutors from stuttgart will bring charges of murder and belonging to a terrorist organization against four syria nationals accused of being members of joe but. we contacted the german authorities and asked them what they have to say about the potential risks of terrorists arriving here in germany using refugees as cover islam be no member so-called blank post balls was stolen from the syrian regime these documents are listed on the interpol last documents database so that the possibles can be matched with passports presented on a. not quite blonde say attitude to blank passports potentially being in the hands
4:12 am
of isis isn't going down well with some of the problem itself is far bigger than we actually realize and that the the mainstream media is able to it's a broadcast and bring to the attention of you know the citizens of the world the countries that have ill thought out the these policies on immigration and the slack border controls that we've seen in european countries i think the results of that is really on one survival i don't think they have any idea of the sheer magnitude of these threats and this problem a lot more needs to be done and if it isn't done we're going to see significant terrorist incidents the sheer number of terrorist incidents we witnessed over the last three years that are linked to isis in european countries shows that even with a small number of terrorists that are off the radar the governments don't have the ability to cope so if we're looking at such a high number you know in the thousands and i think that definitely going to be struggling to do it to cope and woefully incapable of doing such german authorities
4:13 am
uncovered a half thousand cases of people trying to enter the country using false documents and twenty sixteen and the news that isis may have access to over eleven thousand blank syrian passports means that migration authorities are going to have to be on watch to make sure the documents handed over at the border much the real identity of those doing the handing over peter all over. while i solo fighters are trying to make their way into europe thousands had previously gone to fight for the terror group in syria from abroad the lion's share of foreign i still recruits came from tunisia russia france germany and the u.k. are also among the countries where a significant number of citizens left to fight. many of those who went to syria and iraq to fight for islamic state brought their families with them but with the terror group suffering a string of major defeats the wives and children of
4:14 am
a large number of killed five his have wound up in refugee camps with uncertain futures and also he was forced to talk to some of the widows of foreign extremists in iraq where hundreds of families. the location and identities will not be disclosed their safety. is such a dumb was it is. illegal fate of the wives of his is not yet clear meanwhile in europe last year around six hundred people were put on trial for terrorism with more than three hundred fifty
4:15 am
prosecuted for ties to jihadism now should the wives of beisel fighters be treated in the same way as the most extremists we discussed this with and no one saw. well i think the most important thing we have to do is avoid these people coming back to our countries these people have joined a terrorist organization and they wish to join a state that isn't the united kingdom isn't america isn't russia what we're talking about wives and children of isis fighters who have gone out to syria to iraq to kurdistan and have been found themselves inadvertently getting in broiled as part of as much a victim as anyone else has been part of these atrocities let's be clear what the argument that no one saw is making is that you are an adult have chosen to join a terrorist organization and just because you're married you should have no responsibility for that whatsoever of what mr savage but you are in
4:16 am
a terrorist organization so i want to know have you made you know of these let me say are they signed on for lying beside me so let's be clear on my position and let's be clear what i look at your local you don't like your name for yourself as a showing for the majority of iraq just take the air piece out i keep talking the position of the majority of british people in my view is that they do not want terrorists back in the united kingdom they do not want the wives of terrorists back in the united kingdom but there may want the children who are entirely innocent to return to the united kingdom and with that in mind i'll put my earpiece back in these women many of them will be innocent people the children the innocent people they didn't sign up to a terrorist organization it's not like joining a club where you sign up to get a membership form they followed their husbands into a war zone people who have not committed any wrongdoing who are no risk to the state the answer is to integrate them we have the national security apparatus in place to be able to tackle these issues right now meanwhile with russian backed

4:19 am
rocko short thing but there's more here's this weekend statement by the guys in charge of an hard to resolve syrian arab coalition commences offensive tools resume . their resort it's only the biggest city in the country's east which just had its blockade broken. during government troops are already inside doing the de eiseley so why would the coalition get involved. it was a mistake quick correction the coalition's on the way to boot islamic state out of the hub or river valley not quite their ads or but just to the north of the city all sort it keep reading the prestigious mistakenly released an unapproved drugs regarding the fight in the river valley the draft indicated that. a moment to resume this is not the case i thought first of all they were meant to be anti eisel forces we have very little to do with syria other than killing isis
4:20 am
many times in the studio of explain the great strategic importance of controlling their resort and the state islamic state will find itself and if they lose it a different perspective there's still plenty of oil around this area once. you get it but even before islamic state gets fully erased from the map of syria government troops may well come across coalition forces or vice versa trust me this potential proxy call flip would be formidable to say the least earlier this year the pro-government forces were hit by u.s. air strike at least five times in the deserts of southeast syria just because they happened to turn up in the wrong place at the wrong time the united states conducted strikes against two technical vehicles later this morning after that first incident the united states also shot down a suspected program drone speaking of sudden clashes breaking out as various and

forces come together just recently and north american troops along with kurdish units came under fire by the turkish backed rebels the ones that the kurds well when it comes to the east watch this space as it gets a bit crowded there is or. has weakened to a tropical depression after previously reaching a category five in severity it's already dumping rain across the u.s. states of georgia and alabama and continuing northwest. has left a path of devastation with the death toll rising to ten in america and thirty eight in the caribbean shelters filled up with thousands waiting for the storm to pass. and has left over six million without power as winds speeds did get to one hundred thirty miles per hour it's also thought to have caused two hundred billion dollars
4:22 am
worth of those people still struggle from the optima many also question the authorities response to the crisis sees its merits now assessing some of these. times of natural catastrophes like hurricane there's certainly room for heroism and heartwarming tales yet many of those affected by the. disaster were left to fend for themselves is a story with enormous destructive power and safety has to come first believe that just get out of its way now that's very blunt advice from authorities getting to safety however has been proving not so easy for many. hundreds of tourists were left stranded on various caribbean islands including brits and their families spurious with their government's inaction a similar situation unfolded for the canadians some waiting hours hoping to board a plane only to be told they were on the list. is just unfortunate that was our own
4:23 am
governments in a situation like this you know word and you don't see any action. now imagine trying to get away when airlines ticket prices some reaching the tag three thousand dollars some airlines have apologized for the while others have tried to justify it as a last minute fare hotels are also taking advantage of the storm charging up to three hundred dollars a night and social media is fuming with anger over expensive accommodations price gouging in general has been cited as one of the most common issues at the moment. the cost of food water and gas skyrocketed as companies claimed items were running out of forty's were forced to open a complaint hotline which has already received more than eight thousand calls
4:24 am
unfortunately it seems government apathy and price gouging are just as predictable when preparing for a hurricane as the effects of the storm itself. some on our team washington d.c. locals in the french territory of the caribbean island of st maarten are angry the tourists were given priority during evacuations from. the local authorities were called and we are still waiting for any form of response. now of course journalists from all around the world have gone to extreme lengths to brave the wrath of hurricane in lybrel costs we've seen wind swept drenched clothing in dramatic footage as journalists make their reports under extreme weather conditions all the while telling people to stay inside and stay safe but some say practice what you preach and stop showboating. if you're told to a bank leave quickly. i
